Yes I'm sorry, another thread about K2 Kung Fujas...which size?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey guys

I'm a skier from Italy and I'm new in the forum.
I'm going to change my skis with my first pair of freeskis and I found a good deal for a pair of Kung Fujas with griffon schizo bindings, in 179cm or 189cm size.
I know there's a bunch of threads talking about that...but I don't have a pretty typical size (I'm 5'11"/180cm tall and I weigh about 195lbs/88kg), and so, I was wondering I could find someone with same characteristics.

I'm going to use my kung fujas as my one ski quiver, mainly skiing fast on groomers and bumps and doing some easy ride in park and in thin powder and trees when available.
I consider me an advanced groomers skier, but a very beginner in park and in powder (I would like to use KJ to learn)  
So would 179 suit best for me? Or am I too heavy?

My only concern was that 179 skis, having rocker and twintips, though performing better in park, were a little too unstable on groomers than the 189 ones.
What do you think?

I'm the same height/weight as you, and I owned a pair of 189 Kung Fujas. I sold them after about two days of skiing. I found them too soft for my style. I replaced them with a pair of 189 4frnt Turbos, and it's still the favorite ski in my quiver.

FWIW, I'm 35, ski Kicking Horse, and never venture into the park.
